Ubisoft announced that a new singleplayer and multiplayer DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is on its way to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live next month for $9.99, or 800 Microsoft Points.
The singleplayer portion of the DLC sees Ezio in a new storyline involving the mysterious disappearance of Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci gets himself captured by a cult called the Hermeticists, and it’s up to Ezio to traverse two new locations in an effort to locate stolen paintings that are somehow connected with Da Vinci’s disappearance.
If you’re more the multiplayer type, you’ll get a brand new map, “Alhambra”, set in a lush quarter of Spain’s Albaicin of Granada. Also included in the package is four new characters — the Knight, the Marquis, the Pariah and the Dama Rossa — as well as two brand spanking new multiplayer modes, Escort and Assassinate.
Escort has two teams of four working together to protect their VIP, while the other team’s objective is to, of course, assassinate that VIP. Assassinate is a much more straight-forward affair, with six to eight players doing their best to murder each other.
The pack is due out on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live at the “beginning of March” for, once again, $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. Find the teaser trailer of the DLC below.
